Include Families in the Economic Recovery!

Last week the House passed the Economic Recovery package, including key provisions to help families such as the Unemployment Insurance Modernization Act (UIMA) which would give the states incentives to provide unemployment insurance for part-time and low wage workers, a child tax credit to benefit more low-income working families, and the expansion of child care and early education programs such as Head Start. 

The Senate has begun considering this bill but we are concerned that they are not as committed to these key programs as we'd like. We've got to make sure that the Senate approves a bill that includes key programs that provide economic security to families.  

Tell your Senators that families must be at the center of our nation's economic recovery!
